You can only search a surname. You cannot search a date.
Page 1 is always the earliest so if it is much later  just try other pages till you hit the right years .
 The date is the difficult part, but JDGen has got the right explanation.
Who are you looking for ?

John Grimes (sometimes Crimes) born Eastham or Whitby depending on which census about 1816.
Williams, Owens, Pritchard, Povall, Banks, Brown.

Thank you for looking, seems about the same on FindMyPast.  I bet those twins are in my family though as I am always coming across twins - it's a bit strange really!!  My dad was an identical twin too!!

I've actually been working on some Wilcockson distant rellies today living in Liverpool, are you related to them?

Hi All,

You can look at which parishes are covered by clicking on "Progress" in the menu on the left hand side of the screen.  The first section shows which parishes are being looked at and lower down it shows which parishes are loaded.  You can also limit your search to specific parishes by using the drop down boxes on the search page.

Findmypast has much more comprehensive coverage, but the CPRDB site acts as a useful index - the transcribers work from the actual parish registers and BT's rather than a film, I have seen them working at the Cheshire archive so they are using the primary source.  Most of the transcribing for Findmypast was done by people from home using film - I did some myself and it can be difficult to read especially on the older registers.

Hope this helps,

Jean

Thank you Jean that is most helpful, I must revert to the old ways and trawl through the Eastham pages in case it's been missed by a transcriber.

Just done my usual check on transcribers ;)
I have a Delanoy married at gt Bud and as usual she has been transcribed as Delaney.
I could not see a way to get correction advice to the project
Any ideas ?
Delanoy, Carter, Dalton in Cheshire; Simpson, Hoy and Gower(s) in Essex/London
Morgan St Davids, Liverpool and Anglesey; Williams Llangwstenin/Llandudno
